A Non-Commercial Creative Commons copyrighted modest guide, illustrated with stills from Wikimedia Commons, with films ranging from 1933's Little Women to 2013's The Book Thief that are largely of teen interest.  Most of the films are G or PG, more recent titles PG-13, and a handful rated R, aimed at older teens.  The aim was to focus more on the less-prurient stories that are over-produced, and more on human stories that don't require CGI or explosions to entertain. The PG-13 and R-rated...

PD Short Stories February 2018 In this romance-heavy issue, there is August Strindberg's take on why young people should think before they marry.  Two different love stories from Edna Ferber -- young adults in the city and a recent retiree regretting his choices.  Sax Rohmer shows to what extent a man will go to keep his wife in line.  James McKay's Victorian-era hero gets into a restrictive marriage of convenience, and Grace E. King's heroine prepares for getting hitched, Louisiana-style.
Topics: romance, love, marriage, August Strindberg, Edna Ferber, Sax Rohmer, Grace E. King, Mark Twain,...

THE CRUCIAL FIVE A cheat-sheet for fans of film classics, from the thirties up to the present day.  Stripped to the basics, each entry (in alpha order by actor's first name) features five films that display the range of their talent, including some television films, whose careers started no later than the 1980's.  As many of these actors worked together over the years, crossover will occur.  I strived not to have any duplicate film listings; for instance, Roman Holiday shows up under Gregory...

A couple of people suggested that I write a novel, so this is the result, though it's more of a novella, or a prototype for a niche video series.  I prefer writing short stories, so this is actually a series of them linked by a common theme, like Mary Wilkins Freeman's small-town profile collections.  "Unalike - Tales From An Other Earth" is influenced  partly by Levin's "This Perfect Day", Le Guin's "The Dispossessed", and Atwood's "The Handmaid's...

This anthology of world literature is dedicated both to the incoming leader of the free world (who I hear doesn't read books) and the founder of Internet Archive, who seeks to save said treasure in a Canadian mirror site for the duration.  The focus is on soul-saving, or uplifting literature -- from religious texts to noted presidential inaugural addresses of the past.  Poetry, drama, and fiction fill it out.
Topics: history, literature, faith, poetry, drama, non-fiction, Aristophanes, Shakespeare, Moliere,...
